Radavist x Komoot: Silver Linings on the East Devon Trail

Katherine Moore, a zoologist by training and a cycling writer by trade, has just launched a new bikepacking route through her home turf in East Devon. Besides the gorgeous coastal tracks and sleepy wooded trails further inland, quaint thatched villages, and colorful seaside towns, the East Devon Trail features a twist: linking up nature reserves and bird hides along its 115-mile length. While the release of this accessible weekender trail has been the cause of much excitement, its development sprung out of a much darker and unexpected place.

Ride with GPS Has a Mobile Route Planner

When Ride with GPS began developing their new mobile route planner, they had a whole list of things in mind. For one, they wanted to utilize a smart phone’s tapping feature to allow the creation of a route. Users should also be able to search for various locales and be routed to and from your current location, with interactive elevation profiles and deliver riding time-based on how long you climb, pulling from your previous riding history.

Once they began working on the app, they were able to tap into the various map options offered like satellite, terrain, OSM Cycle, OSM Outdoor, ESRI, and more. Finally, they wanted users to develop color-coded routes to distinguish sections.

This app is now available to use, so if you’ve been struggling with other apps, give this one a try!
